Peaceful and fun getaway
This place is amazing! So much better then a hotel or even campground. Very peaceful and quiet, just the way we like it. Big enough for our 2 families. Kitchen had everything. The creek right there was amazing too. The kids we're hoping to use the canoe and tubes but it was a little too chilly. Having the firewood there was a great plus! And it's only 15min from Knoebels!
Will def. be back again!!
This was the perfect place to stay for my family and I! We loved every minute of being there. the house was very clean and comfy. We loved the canoe and fire pit out back. Our 1.5 yr and 4yr old daughters also loved this house. The owner Dave was so great to work with as well as they surprised my kids with pumpkins for when they woke up Sunday morning. We will be spending a lot more family vacations here!
A nice quiet place to relax by the creek. Doug the owner is very generous and helpful and it is nice at the firewood is supplied and we had a great time by the fire pit.
Very comfortable and cozy cottage!
Our family of four really enjoyed our stay in the cottage!
Rustic but run down
Although the setting was beautiful and Doug was very gracious, the cabin was a bit run down. It had a strong musty smell that I just couldn't get rid of. Quite unfortunately, the windows had no screens so we were unable to open them to air things out, or to enjoy the beautiful mountain air. Also, there was significant water damage on the ceiling (that might have led to the musty smell) and a large tear in the seam of the sofa cushion.
I do feel like the cabin offers a lot, such as tubes for the creek, plenty of pots and pans for cooking, as well as a large selection of cleaning supplies. Unfortunately, I don't believe that that the 'leave it as you found it' moto is working. The cabin could benefit from a cleaning service doing a once over every so often.
Thank you for taking the time to review Mayberry Canyon Cottage. We appreciate the constructive feedback as we always strive to ensure an enjoyable experience for all our guests. We are happy to report that since your stay there have been new windows installed, that do open, to allow the fresh mountain air to flow through the cottage. Another option to enjoy fresh air at the cottage is the large screened in porch patio on the back of the cottage. Guests are more than welcome to leave the door open from the porch into the house to allow the outside air into the house. We also do have professional cleaners come in several times throughout the year. Also after each guest leaves the owner comes over to make sure everything is clean and restocked for the next guest. We don't charge our guests a cleaning fee in order to minimize the per diem cost. Thank you for acknowledging the additional amenities that we do offer that families certainly love to enjoy. We strive to make our guests' stay as relaxing and memorable as possible. Thank you for your feedback and concern to make the Mayberry Canyon Cottage experience a positive one.
3rd Time Staying Here. Great as Always!
We love this cottage! 3rd year in a row staying here. So peaceful and the kids love it. As teens they can explore further down the creek on their own with the tubes and they found a great swimming area. Love being unplugged while here. We bring movies and games and do not miss wifi at all. Day trips to Knoebels and World End State Park and just relaxing at the cottage. Can't wait to come back next year!
